"Sequence XI: Ethics, Risk Management and Vulnerabilities:

Yours, Mine, and Ours"

Hybrid event – Scott Conference Center (Omaha) and via Zoom

Presenter: Daniel Taube, J.D., Ph.D.

Conference Description:

For close to 30 years, The Trust has been providing continuing education workshops and individual consultations with a focus on improving psychologists’ risk management skills and strategies. These workshops have evolved from basic concepts and strategies, to a more applied, integrated, and strategic approach to help you protect yourself from adverse disciplinary and legal actions and to support competent practice.

For this newest workshop, The Trust Risk Management Consultants have continued to review data from nearly 90,000 consultations provided to date, along with relevant research, to determine the problems practitioners often confront, and potential strategies for addressing them.

The topics in this new workshop will include:

  • an updated review of decision science and its implications for bias and vulnerability in clinical, ethical and risk management decision making,
  •  strategies for reducing the impact of these vulnerabilities, 
  • issues arising in remote services (during and beyond the pandemic),
  • addressing boundaries in advocacy by professionals on behalf of their clients/patients, and 
  • the risk-management implications of self-care (or its absence) for psychologists.
